Jesper Strömbäck on fact-checking fake news

In a recent article in Swedish newspaper DN, Jesper Strömbäck discusses the results of recently published study on the dissemination of fake news in the media.

The paper discussed in the article, “Causes and consequences of mainstream media dissemination of fake news: literature review and synthesis” (Tsfati, Y., Boomgaarden, H. G., Strömbäck, J., Vliegenthart, R., Damstra, A. & Lindgren, E, 2020), is available on Taylor & Francis Online.
